So In Love....

It's been over six weeks since my beautiful baby girl was born. All I can say is, "WOW!" This new life is everything I never expected and so much more.  I hate to admit that some people were right when they said it doesn't matter how many books you read or classes you take, you will never be prepared. Our new journey began at 4:30 Monday morning-September 20th. We had to be at the hospital at 6am.

We chose Dr. Melissa Rainwater to see us thru the pregnancy and deliver Katelyn. So our hospital was St. Edward's Mercy Medical Center here in Fort Smith.

We had a planned c-section because our little princess was breech. Here are a few pictures of us getting ready for the surgery. I have to admit that I hated the procedure. I did not like most of my body being numb. I started freaking out a little and wanted them to reverse it! But I tried to take the focus off of not being able to move my toes and before long she was out and I was already feeling better. The pressure wasn't as strong.

The grandparents!

When she came out it didn't take her long before she was crying! And she had no trouble in that department. It wasm, however, the sweetest sound ever. I couldn't see her, but lying there hearing her was such a magical moment. Of course there were a few tears! Kevin asked the anesthesiologist if that was normal for them to be crying like that ha ha. And here she is:
Born 9:07am 7lbs 11 oz and 19 1/2 inches long

After about an hour of recovery mommy got to hold her baby girl!
Daddy is soooo proud!

 We had lots of friends and family stop in to welcome our sweet little gift from God. We appreciate all the love and support we have surrounding us. We were even blessed with amazing nurses during our stay. One in particular I deemed my angel in the night. She took care of me and little Miss Katelyn on our first night together. She even came by the next night with a cup of ice to let me know she was sorry that she wouldn't be able to take care of us that night, but if we needed her to go ahead and call her. She was so sweet!

One thing about having a planned c-section is you get to have music playing of your choice. We chose Christian music and the one song I remembered playing during her delivery was Oh, Happiness by David Crowder Band. It is such a happy song. One that demands for a time of rejoicing, just as was the birth of our daughter. I thought what a perfect song. We can "begin again" because of God's grace. That means a brand new life for each and everyone of else just like this brand new life that was born to us. Our future does not have to be like our past. We get a fresh start, a clean slate, so much to look forward to as we "begin again!" Here are lyrics, Enjoy!

Oh, happiness
There's grace enough for us
And the whole human race

(Verse 1)
Friend or foe
Stranger or kin
All who come
Begin again

Hard or frail
Rich or poor
All in need
Need fear no more

Such a thing to give away

(Verse 2)
All regrets
Let go, forget
There's something that
Mends all of it

Such a thing to give away

Sound the church bells
Let them ring
Let them ring
For everything can be redeemed
We can be redeemed
Oh,all of us
